Jade Okra Seeds

Abelmoschus esculentus

Jade Okra Seeds (55 days)

 

Jade okra was developed by the University of Arkansas and released around 1991.  

That wouldn't make it an heirloom, but it is an open pollinated variety and properly pollinated you can keep seed from it to replant next year. 

Jade is known for being an early maturing okra that is extremely high yielding and tender. 

This okra does extremely well in late plantings compared to other okra. 

Plants average 4-5' tall and pods are best harvested around 6" long. 

Excellent home garden or market variety.

Planting Tips:

A hot weather plant, start indoors 2-3 weeks before last frost date.  Soak seeds overnight before planting.  Transplant into the garden a month after last frost date.  A heavy feeder, make sure to plant in fertile soil. 

  • Okra is from Africa.  Okra loves heat.  Days must be over 80F to produce decent crops.  The soil must be over 70F.  If you have cool summers wait to plant Okra at the end of May or 1st week in June.  Plant next heat sinks like rock walls or south sides of structures.  Try placing a few bricks or rocks at the base of established plants a heat sinks.
  • Once established Okra is very drought tolerant.  However, watering every 7-10 will produce higher yields. However don't over water.  Okra does like drier soils than most of your veggies. 
  • Ovoid planting Okra in wet, soggy soils.
  • Okra will grow best in soil that has been worked down to a level of 10".
  • Thin plants to about a 12" apart.
  • Fertilize your bed with composted manure before hand, but do not feed too much nitrogen was established.  This will cause luxuriant growth and few blooms/pods.

Seeding Rate:

75-90,000 plants/acre, aproximately 11-15 lb.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
